The way it is…

or it should be?

A friend to me: I don´t read you

I: The greatest happiness in life is to be associated with the spirit

Friend: what ?

I: And the greatest torment is to know to much…

My Friend with a great question mark over his head: but ähh if when…

I: And yet be unable to be detached

Friend is shaking his head  turning around and left the room

To seek...

My mind became loud:

Waves are moving deep sea stays unmoved

Sometimes is to say nothing the best answer…

or body benefits from movement mind from stillness

Wish a happy stillness

Daoist wisdom…

Refine the self and set up the foundation.

Overcome anger and lust; conquer the self and return to normalcy

Mundane feelings and idle thoughts are all to be thrown away

I Ging and I

Those who hear the Way are small sages; those who accomplish the Way are great sages. 

Yang Shen Fa- Daoist Health Preservation- promoting a long and healthy live

Yang Shen Fa the art of enabling self cultivation by taking our health into our own hands.Yang Sheng Fa promotes methods of self-healing, health cultivation, and encourages a positive state of mind, ultimately leading to the preservation of one’s health, well-being, and from a practitioner’s perspective, greater focus and treatment outcomes.

There are many aspects of Chinese medicine, and Yang Sheng Fa lends itself to the branches that can be used by yourself without having to visit a Chinese Medicine practitioner. These methods include the following:

• Food Therapy / Dietary Improvements

• Herbal Supplementation

• Mind Cultivation

• Acupressure / Self Massage (Tui Na)

• Energy / Breathing Exercises (Qi Gong)

• Physical Exercise (Daoyin or Taiji)

Yang Sheng can be a way of taking advice and training on health and wellbeing, and tailor it to your own individual needs and preferences.

In my clinic for Classical Chinese Medicine a growing number of  patients asking for live and health guidance. This is actually very good because by guidance of daily live like it is named  at Yang Sheng Fa the speed up of to get healthy is really visible. After the patients get back their health and they keep on going on the Yang Sheng Fa principles they can keep their health and enjoy their live.

Here some quotes from Chinese classics:

Mind Cultivation

“Temperance in the emotions can prolong life”

Gong Tingxian, Ming Dynasty (Longevity and Life Preservation)

“It is man himself, not Heaven, who governs his life,

and he who abuses himself dies young, while he who takes

good care of himself enjoys a long life”.

Gao Lian, Ming dynasty

Daoyin Exercise

“Aging does not occur with bodily movement”

Lu Shi Chun Qiu (Lu’s Spring and Autumn Annals)

Nondualistic Mentality

All of the dualities of live are mutually depend and mutually necessary. Here the quote about from Laotse in:

Tao Te Ching (21-2) In the world, everyone recognize beauty as beauty, since the ugly is also there. Everyone recognize goodness as goodness, since evil is also there.

Laotse_s

When one searches only for beauty one stigmatizes the ugly. When people see beauty as pure beauty they view the ugly disparagingly. In valuing the good as purely good their judgement is based upon the idea of bad. But the universal manifests through the division of two from one, each depends on its opposite. So what ? One exist because the opposite exist ! If one would not exist the other would also not exist. Mhhhh, then it would be no separation no judgement means paradise, Shangri-La, nirvana, heaven or Wuji like the daoist are saying.

Teacher or master of an energy or spirituell art ? Part 1

Good question isn´t it ?  The confusion comes easily if you don´t know the difference and how to find points to measure. To read and belief advertisement can´t be the right for it. They are all similar, offering of course the best of the particular art for a better sell. For Qi Gong, Yoga, Taijiquan and so on many many schools with many many teachers or masters who knows where to go or why to chose this or yonder. They showing certification of their education, is that good or not ? But who knows is the organization or the person who certificate them are right or wrong or high or low a good one or a bad one.

Mhhh, so what now ? If you really interested to figure out you have to go personally to the place, studio, gym or to the person who calls him- or herself this or that. The most certification are given because the has done so and so many hours in that particular art. With this information only you can already say to 99% this is a teacher. Because nobody can master an spirituell or energetic art because of training the art for xy amount of hours. A person can of course learn the techniques what also means he or she can perform the external movement or positioning picture perfect but it does not mean the art is mastered.  To master an energy or spirituell art you have to go through your own processes energetic, mentally and spiritually. This may take years after years and no tonly xy hours.

More about will coming soon, stay tuned for part 2.
